i recently sown some spinach but very disappointed that patches of yellow which then turned grey. It appeare to be affected by mildew. I have removed all affected leaves.What can I get to prevent this recurring. help please
This has happened to me before and i think it was down to over watering however i now have changed my approach
sow seeds in modules in greenhouse and as soon as they come through move outside to cold frame to grow on
Greenhouse heat is very unpredictable with the weather changing and the heat affected my plants
Attached photos show seeds in cold frame (viking and summer bloomsbury) and my first crop coming along now (bloomsbury) very juicy leaves
good luck with your next sowing
Thank you Chris for your advice. I shall give your method a go. I have a wooden trough which I grow some spring green last year and I read somewhere saying this could be the problem ie some kind of fungal. No point having the crop that you cannot harvest due to the blight.
